a category 4 hurricane over jamaica by monday afternoon. the forward speed is slowed down a little bit. not the speed of the storm. how fast it's moving. once it goes over cuba it will likely weaken. but notice this. this track has not changed from the earlier track. there's been a lot of buzz and questions about whether it's going to get closer to florida. at this point in time the hurricane center clearly said we have not changed our track, and for very good reason. if you look at models, there's the 5, it extends the majority go into the bahamas. whether or not it goes up to the north and impact the northeast, which is a possibility, or stalls out in the bahamas that, too, a possibility. we'll talk more in detail with my forecast in a couple of minutes. >> thanks denis. breaking news out of california tonight protesters taking to the streets of el cajon outside of san diego for the fourth straight night following a deadly police shooting of an

>> then they grow up. >> but i still want to take one home. >> speaking of blowing up -- >> this went from a one to a five in a day. >> which is almost unheard of. it's the strongest hurricane we've had in the atlantic since 2007. that was hurricane felix. and it's probably reached its peak, which is more than fine enough for us, right? you're looking at what is an extremely powerful hurricane. the big question, of course, where is it going. we in a couple of minutes. i want to focus in on what's happening locally. there are still a few showers out there. even one little -- two lightning strikes near the skyway. some heavier rains northwestern manatee county. a few showers in pasco and polk. some drier air is moving in especially across our northern counties. i think the weekend is actually looking rather nice for most of the area north of i-four. still a few isolated showers are in the cards south of that front or what was left of that
there it is. temperatures still comfortable in the mid to upper 70s. the difference subpoena north look at the green color up there. cooler and dryer. not this go around. but if we're lucky believe it or not, if matthew moves up the eastern seaboard it would actually bring us some cooler, drier air rolling in by the end of next week. but that's a long way away. we've got plenty to talk about before that. 80 from tampa to clear water to st. pete under partly cloudy skies. there's the satellite. we've had that winds out ahead of a front. that cool front sort of draping across our northern counties. out ahead there's still enough moisture to spawn the showers and storms but there's that dry air i talked about. as you can see, it's across our northern counties. rain chances will be a little higher down south of i-4 tomorrow and again on sunday. a little lower in our northern counties. then actually i think by monday everybody kind of gets back in the act. i don't think it will be a huge deal. obviously what happens with
i'm not talking about a storm moving into the gulf of mexico. i'm just talking about some moisture kicking across the state, and that's a possibility, along with wind by wednesday and thursday. tomorrow morning waking up to a nice start. partly sunny. it will be pleasant, cool 60s in our northern counties, low to mid-70s elsewhere. still can't rule out a few showers tomorrow but not many. east to west flow begins to set in by late tomorrow, and again on wednesday. or rather on sunday. so that means the timing of you are going to see sunny skies tomorrow, sunny skies on sunday. both dance in morning, and then by the afternoon into the evening, maybe a few more storms. could be an issue for the bucs game yet again in the second half. but we will see how that plays out. all right, recon, the latest recon is leaving the storm, but they're pretty much flying in continuously now, and winds between 150 and 160 miles per hour.
this is an extremely powerful hurricane. now, where is it going, and in terms of the timing, that's the big question. the bad news is, it looks like this is going to go pretty much right on top of jamaica. remember, kingston jamaica has over a million people in that city. it has been a long time since it has been hit by this powerful a hurricane from the south. most of time they come in from the east. this will just add energy, fuel, and surge. so this could be a major disaster for the island of jamaica monday it will weaken when it crosses cuba. but this is the area that we have to watch. now i will say it again. none of the reliable models are bringing this into the gulf of mexico. let's throw that off the table right now. what we have to focus on is what we think could happen in this cone of uncertainty. is it possible this could get very close to the state of florida on the east side? sure, it is. the models aren't showing that
updating you with live facebook clast as well. spaghetti molds show a lot of agreement but there are a few closer to the east coast of florida. i will say it again. there are none that bring this into the gulf of mexico. the bigger question in my mind is, is it going to go and stall out in the bahamas like the european model shows, or is it going to go up the eastern seaboard like the gfs, the u.s.a. model shows, which brings it into new england bth next week. a big difference between the two. that is something we will have to watch closely into early next week. we're not going to have an answer on this until the middle of next week. it is going to be around that long. it is going to be a powerful hurricane most of that time. there's a look at florida's most accurate forecast. better chance the middle of next week and as i said, if matthew goes up the eastern seaboard some drier air comes
. hi everyone. thanks for stopping by. two weeks ago doug martin's production for the buccaneers took a big hit when martin injured his hamstring in arizona. he missed last weekend's game and now you can add this weekend's broncos game to that list. martin will not play against denver. he is not the only buc would is out. cecil shorts, robert heirs and luke stocker will miss games as well. as for sunday's game no, one saw broncos simian have this much success. he lit up the offense last week. he flew up the depth chart so fast. >> how many times do you see guy that went from third on the depth chart to first?
that. i've seen a guy go from third to second or second to first but go third to first, probably played his best game last week soft off to a good start for sure. speaking of quarterbacks, willie taggart's qb is going to need a better performance tomorrow at cincinnati than what we saw last weekend. flowers may have wracked up 300 yards against fsu but he struggled mightily through the air. twice. overall tag gert has been pleased with his quarterback's performance through four games. but there is still a lot of room for improvement. >> decision making-wise, i think he could be better. i think those two picks were bad. it was all decisions. it was those things where you make up your mind before the ball, and you just can't do that. when we see the bad d throws, it's usually that, sothing surprising, and it shouldn't surprise him.
at 7:00. florida is at vanderbilt while florida state hosts north carolina. rays are in their final stretch of the 2016 campaign with their final series in the lone star start beginning tonight. matt andreas didn't pitch bad tonight for the rays but he did give up three runs including this carlos beltran solo shot. laserred down the right field line and gone for his 29th of the year rangers leading 2-0 in the 8th,3-1. nick franklin cannot bring longoria home. matt bush gets him to fly out. rangers clinch home field for the postseason. when derek jeter and mariano rivera did their
